  • I had two hours, once finding the wine country of Temecula, to do a couple tastings. I was given the suggestion for two wineries which were conveniently located next to each other; South Coast and Pon...  more »

  • South Coast Winery Resort and Spa is just that. The winery is the centerpiece of the resort and the main reason my wife and I visit. The variety of wines South Coast offers is by far the best in Temec...  more »

  • If you like more selection of younger, refreshing and fruitier tasting wines, this is the place. If you want reserve wines, you will be referred to go to their sister winery in Carter Estates across the street. South Coast gives you five tastes for $18. You must first purchase a tasting ticket at the register near the main entrance. They have a decent amount of sparkling, white, reds, rose and sweet wines. Their tasting bar is huge but half of them were open when we arrived since it was Tuesday on the same week as Thanksgiving. The staff was knowledgeable with the questions my wife asked them and what wines I was looking for. We were able to split a tasting together. We were able to enjoying our tasting outside too. We just had to walk in each time we wanted another taste. My wife ended up buying a couple bottles while I went out empty handed. I like reserve wines better. Good wines though!
  • I took my sister from Chicago here while she visited me this past May and we both loved it. I am new here so still exploring the areas and all its many offerings. We ordered the cheese plate and the wine flights for 2 and that is the smartest thing to have on your menu! It made it so easy and effortless to choose and we thoroughly enjoyed them immensely both (and we are picky). I would say the reason it did not get 5/5 was because we ordered a dessert and the dessert was straight up made with cool whip and I know how much cool whip costs so do not know what happened here but the dessert left me unimpressed... Our waitresses were awesome and took such good care of us and we still had a lovely evening despite the dessert falling flat. We will definitely be back again for the wine and cheeses plate.
  • It was a weekend. The Tasting Room was very busy. Fortunately we had members with us and we were able to access their exclusive area. That was still busy but not nearly as crowded. They have many selections including sparkling wines available for tasting. Overall we enjoyed a great deal of the product available. Not sure if you would have the same selection if you were in the main Tasting Room.
  • The winery is a great place for a relaxing stroll! The tasting was a very memorable experience, and at only $15 per person from Monday to Friday, what a bargain! The selection of wines was quite vast and varied, and there is plenty of room to move about both indoors and out. Would recommend to anyone visiting the Temecula Valley.
  • SCWR&S was a good experience overall. We were upgraded from the tower to a villa without being asked, which was fine. The villa rooms are nice, plenty of space. We received a free bottle of wine, which was a nice perk. Sadly, housekeeping seems to have been short-staffed or the hotel over-booked, so they didn't refresh our room, even after I called the front desk mid-day and asked about the timing of the housekeeping rounds at the villas. When we returned in the evening we called the front desk to get more towels and coffee delivered, so we didn't have any problems, but after being assured that they would refresh the room it was disappointing that they didn't. We didn't get an apology or explanation, either. I feel bad about leaving a less-than-five rating, as I know that bonuses and so forth are sometimes dependant on ratings (I used to work at a RC hotel). I didn't feel like anybody was going out of their way to answer my questions or surpass my expectations, though, so I guess they'll be satisfied with a four.
